I just downloaded the latest texlive.tlpdb from
and to ny astonishment I find out that ALL packages now have a revision
number of 15878:

$ grep -c -e "^revision 15878" texlive.tlpdb

This is very bad for me, as I crucially depend on that parameter to
update and maintain the texlive packages for Arch Linux! Hopefully this
is a bug, not a feature ;)
